Gamers Unaware of Natal and Move, says Nielsen

As Sony and Microsoft have been pummeling away at each other with campaigns for their respective motion controllers, it would seem as though most “gamers” are completely unaware of either product. (Culture, Industry, Microsoft, Move, Project Natal, PS3, Sony, Tech, Xbox 360)

Nobody knows what gamers aware of and not
But one thing for sure that the move is having my attention already

And geez, there probably is a good reason gamers are not aware" of it-- because it's not out yet!

Seriously, these statements are so stupid. You can't expect a majority to know much about the motion controls when they aren't even released. Depending on the advertising, which I assume MS especially to put out, gamers will know of the motion when the time is right. There really is no reason to know about it right now anyway. I'm personally tired of all the doomed articles, comparisons, and fights that have broken out over what little information we have. I can't wait to see this place and the hundreds of websites giving their opinion when we have more tangible resources like games, price, final design, etc.

People are not aware of Natal due to a lack of info over the past 3-6 months.
PSMove on the other hand is gaining alot more mindshare due to the public actually getting to interact with it... and Not just a few people in a closed session, in a big bright room, with likely the optimum thermal settings and environment.

PS.
Alpha,
just wait till Sunday when MS unleashes the Natal Wave.
(tidal wave... natal wave... lol... ok I need therapy... but not today.)

As much media that has been given by MS on Natal, I'm suprised this isn't the only thing gamers are talking about.

Not surprising
That should change after E3.

What is surprising is that according to their little survey, 31% believe Natal will be less than $50. Sorry, not going to happen.

Well duh, what do they think E3 is for?

I swear these analyst need to STFU.

I was thinking that.. This survey would of been better served after E3. MS has been keeping this under wraps on purpose so they can present it to the world at E3 and then let the press take it from there.

I'm also unaware of the PS4.... that's because it's not out yet.

DURR!

Gamers Unaware of Nielsen, Say Gamers
All the gamers I know are aware of Move and Natal. They just aren't interested for the most part.

Those aren't REAL gamers. Real gamers know about everything coming out. Those must be the gamers that buy the Wii.
